Un Pueblo Que No Calla: Voices from the Resistance Movement in Honduras
Thursday, November 6, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (CST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Karla Lara will celebrate the resistance movement in Honduras since the 2009 U.S.-backed coup & create spiritual space that inspires social movement through art & song. Grounded in a feminist perspective, Karla will lift up la lucha - the struggle - against militarization, political violence & attacks against social movements. Gather with us to celebrate el pueblo que no calla, the people who will not be silenced!
In the harsh reality of Honduras, contrasted with hope and happiness, Karla lends her voice to the struggle for international women's rights with the perseverance required for this counter-cultural and anti-patriarchal challenge. She is part of the National Network of Human Rights Defenders in Honduras and has been involved in political and cultural activity throughout Central America since the 1980s. She has recorded three albums and is a working artist, journalist and feminist in a country where resistance in her artistic life has always been tied to political life in Central America.
